Softgels

Soft gel technology is becoming an increasingly popular dosage form in the market of prescription drug (Rx) and over-the-counter drug (OTC). From better stability to easier swallowing, soft gel formulations offer many benefits. Consumers like soft gels because their smooth texture makes them easy to swallow. All soft gels are produced in cGMP certified auxiliary manufacturing equipment equipped with the next generation of mixing, packaging and finishing machinery. The machine is operated by professional technicians and is strictly supervised by doctors. The packaging and drying process of the equipment is improved. There is strict quality control over all aspects of the soft gel production process. This ensures that our soft gel results are unparalleled.

Advantages of Softgel

The soft gel shell preserves your nutritional formula in the form of a liquid. There is an industry consensus that, under normal circumstances, the human body will absorb more nutrients from dietary supplements in the form of oral soft gels than tablets or hard shell capsules. This advantage is particularly beneficial if your formula contains ingredients that are challenging for body absorption. For these reasons, soft gels are already easier to market.
